26 Mar 2012 - Update Highest Rated Pain Stories Highest Rated Gain Stories Vodafail Local Facebook Page
Dear visitor,

Since its inception Vodafail.com has made a significant contribution towards raising awareness of the problems and issues faced by Vodafone customers.

Vodafone Australia customers have had the opportunity to voice their concerns, their fears and their troubles from every corner of Australia and beyond our borders. You have gathered the courage to stand up for your rights as consumers and to make your voice heard.

Each and every person who shared their story should have a sense of pride in this achievement and the changes that have occurred since the start of Vodafail.com.

More recently, traffic to Vodafail.com has declined significantly. Having achieved the goal of raising awareness and promoting concrete action in early 2011, we have now reached the point of closing Vodafail to new complaints. The site will remain online for as long as possible as a reminder and an example of what is possible when we share our experiences.

It has been a privilege to run this initiative and I'm am forever grateful for the help and support I've received. In particular I would like to thank Melissa, David and Travis for their continued efforts over the past 15 months. I'm also thankful and humbled by the support of ACCAN, Choice magazine and a wide range of media outlets, blogs and websites.

You can still browse existing stories and find out how to file a complaint if you are experiencing problems.

Until next time,

Adam Brimo

My email to vodafone:
Dear Vodafone,

your coverage is the worst out of any network I have ever used.

How you can call what you provide as a 'service' is beyond me. The past 3 weeks experience has been worse than normal, costing me time, urgent communication and money. Your total lack of consistency is beyond a joke.

After having an initial issue with my previous number I stupidly have kept using your prepaid while my issue is pending.

As soon as I can resolve everything with your business I will be changing service provider immediately.

I will be doing the same for the fleet I currently have set up in our office.

You guys are a joke!

My reply to Vodafone:
Dear Vodafone,

I do not have a pin on my prepaid service.

How about you do your job and provide a proper service instead of wasting more of my time.

The amount of money and time you have already cost me, due to such abhorrent coverage and service, is a disgrace. Not to mention the amount of money wasted on connection fees from having to call back numbers up to 5 times, mid conversation.

I am still waiting to hear from the Vodafone Ombudsman in regard to my existing plan, which you charged me over $2000 for, for uses that are physically not possible with your coverage. This issue has been ongoing for close to 5 months, and you still continue to charge me for a service I no longer use, that you cut connection to 3 months ago.

No less than 5 of my family and friends have had exactly the same problem with being overcharged for phone usage and also had to wait months until you resolved the problem, during which time you emailed them to tell them that it was a one off situation. Fortunately for me I no longer receive the highly upsetting calls from Vodafone on a daily basis telling me that I need to pay you or you will cut me off, as you have disconnected my plan, but never attempted to resolve the questioned excessive charges from your end.

After countless failed attempts to resolve the issue with you, and after being cut off from your overseas customer call centre, and hung up on by many staff who did not understand my complaint, I am still waiting for you to resolve my initial issue. I assume at some point someone will get back to me, but based on your coverage, I would have to guess that you are finding it difficult to get in contact with me.

Vodafone reply:

still pending.
